I have probably hundreds of old blog posts littering up the Internet, some of the more technical selections from which are listed below. The Medium blog I started while attending Grace Hopper is the freshest source, though I also still cross-post to my self-hosted publishing blog, because Never Trust a Free Platform.
I’ve also written a lot of internal documentation, most of which is locked down within the companies I wrote it for. Still retrievable, however, are all the public-facing FAQs I wrote for Poets.org between 1999 and 2001.
There are several of technical though non-programming blog posts (e.g., UX-related) on my old book publishing blog. See, for example,
- Renumbering navpoints in BBEdit the not-so-hard way (March 5, 2015)
- Degristling the sausage: BBEdit 11 Edition (February 12, 2015)
- Manually editing ruby on Chinese characters in InDesign (February 23, 2014)
- Castoff Calculator (December 8, 2013)
- PDFs in EPUBs: Test results (August 24, 2012)
- Degristling the sausage (April 11, 2012)
- What happens when an e-book gets corrected? (February 3, 2011)
- The option that wasn’t (April 4, 2010)
Digital Book World
These two articles were published on F+W Media’s Digital Book World blog (though they were also cross-posted to my own). They were meant to begin an eight-part series, but then I started working at F+W and promptly became too busy to continue.
- E-Reading Application Showdown, Part 1: Annotations (June 6, 2011)
- E-Reading Application Showdown, Part 2: Typography (July 28, 2011)
They have been cited in the class reader for PUB310: Publishing in the Digital Environment, by Kosie Eloff, Liam Borgstrom, and Laetitia Cassells (Pretoria, South Africa: University of Pretoria, 2013).
